I am an Oklahoma hobby baker who is wanting to become legit and I am looking for any and all Oklahoma cakers who want this law passed. I've done a little research on this and the good news is there are a few OK congressmen who have already written a law so we don't have to do much more than put on the heat to get it reintroduced and PASSED!
Is there anybody else in OK who wants to help get this done?

What exactly would a cottage law give us here in OK. I would love it if we could bake and sell legally without having a shop. Is that what a cottage law would do? THanks

YES! would so love to have a cottage food law. I'd much rather see one that is more similar to TX and other states than the one they introduced that died in committee though. I think the original OK bill limited the # of people who could do it and required inspection. I don't think that the TX law requires inspection, just special labeling that says it was made in a home kitchen. I would think this would have far less overhead for the state and result in more money for the state (permit fees, sales tax, and more people would actually report their cake income).

Well I just talked to our help dept here in Tahlequah, Ok and they said the law did not pass icon_sad.gif I would love to try to start a petition again and try to push legislative to pass this. It would help out so many people in this state, especially with the prices of everything else.

AThere is an active petition for an OK CFL: http://signon.org/sign/cottage-law-ok

Once you sign the petition, the next step is to contact your state senator and representative. An in-person meeting will have the most impact.
